Are you having a Loose Implant?
It could be because of Implant Infection!

Patients are often often told that Dental Implants are a permanent solution. However in 2-5% of cases, even the implants can become loose or unstable. If you notice any signs of loose dental implant, it is important to seek professional evaluation and advise from your dentist at the earliest possible to avoid any implant infections or complications.

Signs and Symptoms

Few of the common signs and symptoms of a loose implant are as follows:

  • Pain and Discomfort

    Early signs include discomfort and dull pain around the loose implant. Functionality and chewing with loose implant becomes difficult.

  • Recession of Gums and Discolouration around Implant

    Gums recede around implants with Infection. Gum recession with loose implants can look unaesthetic, make patients feel self-conscious, and even result in implant failure.

  • Mobility or Loose Implant

    A failed implant will be consistently movable. If your dentist notices that your implant is mobile, they might recommend an X-ray to check your bone growth around the Implant.

  • Inflammation around Loose Implant

  • Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory diseased condition affecting the soft and hard gum tissues around dental implants. Similar to a natural tooth, bacteria can build up on the base of the implant, below the gum line causing swelling.

  • Movement of Artificial Crown.

Loose Implant

Causative Factors:

Loose Abutment

Loose Dental Crown

If you've had Crown held on with Cement, the de-cementation of the crown can lead to a loose crown which needs to be cemented. 


Current or previous infections around the loose implant increases the risk of implant failure. Some of the other reasons for failed implant include trauma during surgery, Poor Implant positioning, Delayed wound healing due to other Medical Problems, Poor bone stability, overloading the Implant etc.

Most Common: Loose Abutment

The abutment is a crucial component that connects the dental implant to the crown or tooth cap. In approximately one-third of cases, the abutment is the part that becomes loose. Abutments can go loose for several reasons, including trauma, faulty design, or excessive force on the implant. In some cases, improper placement of the implant can also contribute to abutment looseness. Fortunately, this issue is often painless and can typically be resolved without causing damage to the implant or crown.

Gum Disease and Bone Loss

It may be a combination of factors, including:

Improper Home Care

Failure to follow postoperative instructions and poor oral hygiene efforts may increase the risk of Implant Infection.

What is Right for You: All-on-6 or All-on-4 Dental Implants?

If you are looking for replacing many of the missing teeth or all the teeth in either of the jaws or both the jaws, "All on 4" and "All on 6" treatment procedures will be the point of discussion with the Dentist most of the times. Though both the treatment concepts appear to be very similar and look to achieve similar results, they have some key difference in the procedures.

All-on-4 Implants

Suffering from missing teeth? Looking for an alternative to adhesive dentures or multiple implants? All-on-4 implants are a great solution for replacing multiple missing teeth.

The All-on-4 system attaches dentures to as less as 4 individual implants to ensure a rock-solid and permanent solution and the perfect fit. Talk to us to learn if All-on-4 implants are right for you.

All-on-6 Dental Implants

Patients with edentulism (the absence of teeth) can also be advised to go for an All-on-6 Dental implant treatment option. Six implants are used to repair and re-construct the single arch of teeth. Bridges are fabricated over 6 implants to replace 12 teeth in each jaw (First Molar to First Molar). 

The All-on-6 system ensure an optimum rock-solid solution and the perfect fit. Talk to us to learn if All-on-6 implants are right for you.

All-on-8 Dental Implants

All-on-8 Dental Implants

Patients with edentulism (the absence of teeth) can be advised to go for an All-on-8 Dental implant treatment option. For individuals who look forward to restore more than 90% of their lost natural teeth bitting efficiency, this treatment option is often advised.                  

Eight implants placed in one tooth arch also makes it possible to install a bridge more swiftly and securely. All-on-eight procedures are more efficient, have a natural appearance and feel, and, most significantly, are fixed. 

“By writing this review I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Mohit Dhawan and his team. I certainly made the right choice after having three consultations, before I visited ADC. What impressed me the most is that he doesn't try to convince you to do treatments which aren't necessary as I have experienced some dentists try to convince you for treatments which aren't actually needed. I had an accident last year in which I lost a tooth and Dr. Mohit suggested me for a dental implant. Now, I feel much more confident about my smile."
